This is the first picture I have posted on stevesforums.com. Also this night of photgraphy is what really got me into photography. I had been taking people shots of my University's RAG week and someone I met asked me to do the photography for her charity gig. I borrowed the camera I used for the RAG week, a Powershot A40, shot about 200 frames and have been working to get a 350D since. Please, I have been really wanting to get some critiques of my shots. I can't just be doling out the criticism to other people's photos.

Eeek. The title of this thread looks dodgy. I never liked the, "LOOK! IT'S MY FIRST POST" threads. I guess I got caught up in the excitement of meaningful opinions.

i like the directional light, and the fact that you didn't ruin the mood with flash... i amleft wanting a little more detail in the shadows though... or another option would be to crop in just a tad closer to take out some of the darker almost empty space on the bottom right.. mb somewherejust belowknee levelish..

and this one just screams out for a grainy black and white conversion.. make it look like the old fast black and white films, i think that would be killer on a shot like this..

its nice work and looks like a fun gig.. hope to see more of your available light concert photos..

regards, -dustin

I think I agree. Good shot, the only limitation is the camera's. Grainier might be the way to go. Clean and brighten isn't always the best, especially for mood. You miight find this too soft.
